Introduction

ENG 1D1 June 7, 2010 Love is l**t Upon reading the play, Romeo and Juliet, readers could clearly determine the kind of relationship shared by the two main characters. Shakespeare's famous tragic play shows the lustful relationship that transpired between Romeo and Juliet. In the beginning of the story, Romeo found himself heartbroken from Rosaline because she did not have any feelings for him.

Romeo and Juliet never had a relationship before they became a couple. They did not know what love really was because they were only after s****l intercourse.
